Meteor hunters: Orionids on show!

Just a quickie for anyone interested in meteors: The Orionid meteor shower peaks on Wednesday (Oct 21), and has been one of the most spectacular meteor showers of the past few years. The best time to view should be in the early hours of Wednesday morning, but you may be able to catch some for a few days before and after this date.

The Orionids are so called because they appear to radiate out from Orion's elbow.
